To anyone looking forward to a Kevin Ruldolf post I'm sorry to c-tease you with the title. This post is actually in regards to the new Clarks "Rock" Wallabee, which is part of their F/W 2010 collection hitting stores this August. I may be a slave to low top "cream Wallows", but I'll be damned if these aren't incredibly awesome. The concept here is equal parts simple and genius - take a classic Clarks' silhouette and supe it up with some killer hiking boot details (d-rings, hiking laces, reinforced sole). Bam. Done. It's that simple. I'm assuming Clarks is going to to charge a premium on these and there is no word yet on availability on our shores, but hopefully we'll be able to get out hands 'em because there is no doubt the Brits will. And if you ever actually go hiking in these you're probably gonna have a real dope broken ankle to go with your real dope shoes.
